Two Men May Lose Limbs After Late-night Accident

CORPUS CHRISTI - Three people are in very serious condition and some might even lose limbs after a late night accident.

When the group's vehicle broke down around midnight, they decided to push the car down the road on Staples and Yorktown.

CCPD Police said the three made it out of a private parking lot and onto a poorly lit street when another driver smashed into them.

The vehicle flew at least 100-yards, the length of a football field, after being hit.

EMS took the two men and a woman, all in their twenties, to the emergency room.

"It's very possible that their might be some loss of limbs," said Lieutenant Israel Soza.

After hitting the car, the driver took off.

Police quickly found and arrested him, but they haven't charged him yet.

"We're investigating a possible intoxication assault case," said Soza. "There's reason to believe that the individual was under the influence of alcohol."

Intoxication assault is a third-degree felony.
